Teleflex recognizes that supplier diversity creates a competitive advantage and positively impacts the global community. Teleflex believes that the success of the Company and society depends on enabling diverse businesses to share and grow in the global market. Teleflex is committed to ensuring that supplier diversity is an integral part of our business by:
